Michael Moore Backs New Film on Resistance

Oscar winner Michael Moore has signed on to help an Israeli filmmaker produce his next documentary — a project that will focus, in part, on the small minority of Germans who defied the Nazis during World War II.

Moore, who received an Academy Award for the 2002 documentary “Bowling for Columbine,” has agreed to match funds currently being raised by Yoav Shamir, whose previous films two have focused, respectively, on Israel’s military culture and anti-Semitism. Like his new benefactor, he’s no stranger to controversy: His most recent film, “Defamation,” questioned and at times mocked accusations of anti-Semitism emanating from parts of the Jewish world, looking in particular at the Anti-Defamation League.
